Keeping Pace
The Baldwin Park Braves have won four games in a row thanks to the solid pitching of Jordan Palacio and the hitting of Christian Barraza.
On The Flipside
The Monrovia Wildcats have lost three in a row and fallen from first to second. Dave Moore and Brad Blackmore’s team will look to right things today at home against Temple City. The Rams have lost three of their last four Rio Hondo League games and have gone from being tied for first to third place.

Fanning The Flames
Monrovia pitcher Adrienne Guerra in 107 innings of work has struck out 157 batters
Speaking of Monrovia
Wildcats center fielder/shortstop Elise McCarthy has an on base percentage of .697 That means McCarthy is getting on base seven out of every 10 times she comes to the plate. For perspective Ty Cobb, considered the greatest hitter in baseball history, had a career batting average of .366 and a .433 on base percentage.
